It was challenging starting a new team back in October 2016 – as only a couple of the group had played any team football before – but it has proved highly rewarding as all the lads have been really enthusiastic and we have seen fantastic development in them all. The results have largely been a mixed bag as we have tried to find our feet, but we have been competitive and hard to beat, even when we try and experiment and try new positions. The lads have been a pleasure to coach, giving us very few problems and always willing to listen and improve.
The coaching dynamic changed in January when Chris agreed to come on board and he has been a great help, offering a different voice and allowing us to sometimes break down the training into smaller groups to target different players. We have a very good team spirit and the management team are expecting even more from this great bunch of lads next season!
The team play in the U11 Ospreys Division of the Central Lancs Junior Football League and their fixtures and results can be found HERE
